Platycerium sp - Staghorn Fern

$ 12.00

Platycerium species are nicknamed Staghorn Ferns (or Elkhorn Ferns) for good reason – their elongated, forked fronds look just like antlers. As it matures, your staghorn fern will also grow shield fronds - round, plate-like leaves that eventually dry to form a protective layer around the roots of the plant. Staghorn ferns are epiphytes (plants that grow on other plants or trees), making them a popular choice for mounting. Whether you decide to mount your staghorn fern or grow it terrestrially in a pot, Platycerium species makes an excellent houseplants that thrive in small spaces.

Staghorn ferns need bright, indirect light and good drainage. Mist the fern regularly to promote a humid environment. Includes detailed care instructions.

- 4" pot - 3-5 antler fronds, measuring about 3-6"
- 6" pot - 5-8 antler fronds, measuring about 6-10"

Ships in a plastic nursery pot. We choose from our assortment of Staghorn Fern species and cultivars, including Platycerium bifucatum, Platycerium veitchii and Platycerium 'Netherlands'.  Planters sold separately.

Lovely plant, can't wait for it to grow up!

I just adore the look of these staghorn ferns and I'm eager to watch my little fella grow and grow. I'm delighted with my plants and the packing was excellent and very secure. I also got a pot and some of the charcoal chips to line the bottom of my pots. Very pleased and can't wait to order more!

Staghorn Fern

I got several plants from Pistils and already have another shopping cart full. Great care taken to package and prepare with cards to tell how to care for each plant that was orderd. I love them. They make me feel happy..

Horrible customer service

I had emailed 2x about my order and never got a reply. I don’t like to leave a bad review but not hearing back from you to address my concerns was a big problem as I gave you plenty of time to respond twice.
